Many people aspire to have plump, defined lips. Unfortunately, the aging process can lead to lost volume and definition in the lips, as well as wrinkles.
The lip flip is a quick, minimally-invasive treatment that can transform the appearance of your lips. In just 10 to 20 minutes, the lip flip can give you sexy and rejuvenated lips, along with a major boost of confidence!
What is a Lip Flip?
The lip flip is an aesthetic treatment that uses Botox to enhance the look of the lips. During the treatment, Botox is injected into the cupid’s bow of the lips. The cupid’s bow is located in the center of the upper lip, where the lip curves to a point.
How Do Lip Flips Work?
Botox is a popular injectable that contains Botulinum toxin type A. This is a neurotoxin that blocks muscle contractions and it is most commonly used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds. However, when Botox is injected into the cupid’s bow, it makes the muscles surrounding the lips relax.
When the muscles around the lips relax, the area of the upper lip that’s inside of the mouth rotates up and out. This not only makes the upper lip appear larger but also decreases vertical lip lines.
How is the Lip Flip Different from Lip Fillers?
Although the lip flip and fillers are both used to improve the appearance of the lips, the results of these treatments differ. The lip flip simply makes more of the upper lip visible, while lip fillers volumize the lips with injections of hyaluronic acid. Additionally, lip fillers can last for 6 to 12 months, while the lip flip lasts for just 2 to 3 months.
With that said, the lip flip can effectively rejuvenate the lips and decrease the visibility of prominent gums. As a quick procedure, it’s ideal for patients seeking a convenient and short-term lip enhancement.
